While working as a personal trainer at his college’s recreation center, Doctor of Chiropractic Taylor Levick learned that the gym was used for more than weight loss and muscle gain. It also served as the stomping grounds for people to alleviate pain via corrective exercises. The void of pharmaceuticals to ease discomfort intrigued Dr. Levick, and in turn he followed a path in chiropractic care. At Tampa Sport & Spine, he helps patients regain their health by manually adjusting their spines, applying Kinesio tape to injured areas, and customizing corrective exercise plans.
Brothers in both life and business, chiropractic physicians Dr. Tan Burns-Tran and Dr. Thang Tran know that what feels like simple stress and strain can actually be a sign of a bigger underlying problem. That's why they've stocked their office with the most advanced diagnostic technology to help pinpoint the unique problems plaguing each body. Their Microfit analysis program provides a detailed breakdown of total body health––including a fitness profile, diet analysis, and cardiovascular assessment––which can then be used to recommend an appropriate course of treatment that may include anything from regular massage to a personalized nutrition program.
Beyond strengthening spines and treating common chiropractic maladies such as joint or neck pain, headaches, and injuries sustained from auto accidents, the office also offers yoga and Pilates classes for those looking to strengthen their core and increase range of motion. It also plays host to workshops on topics such as arthritis management or common diet pitfalls, as well as daily sing-alongs for those who frequently forget what the neck bone is connected to.
SmartHealth Wellness Centers medical director Dr. David Kalin supervises a team that aims to help patients improve their overall wellness.
